connell was trying to say, we have come to this agreement. voting to raise taxes. that's huge for republicans. don't scuttle it because of some hiccup over the sequester. now a lot of democrats who don't like this, they want the president to fight. remains to be seen is that can it pass the house gop? house republicans said any type of deal that doesn't cut spending will not get our vote even if it comes out of the senate. still a long way to go on any final compromise. >> kristen, what are you hearing out of the white house right now? >> toure, i'm hearing that actually their optimism seems to be mounting this afternoon. they are hopeful. you heard mitch mcconnell say it on the senate floor, they're very, very close to a deal. having said that, you heard mike viqueira, luke russert lay out the problem with the sequester issue. that's the sticking point and sources at the white house tell me that staffers, senior negotiators have been working with the phones all afternoon long, of course, vice president biden, as well. deeply engaged in these negotiations. they have been pushing back, though, agai
of over 150,000 american men and women in my hands. i don't want to make a mistake. i'm human, and i recognize that i might. and i worry about that. regardless of the outcome, if when this whole thing is over i can say to myself, you gave it your best shot, then that's got to be enough. >> good morning. it's he friday, december 28th. on set with us the co-host of "sfreet signs" is brian sullivan who just showed up here. president of the national action network is rev raend al sharpton and fortune editor lee gallagher in washington, vice president and executive director of msnbc.com. that was general norman swa schwartzkopf you saw on your screen who passed away yesterday. i have a lasting memory of general schwartzkopf who served in the war in vietnam as well as leading gulf storm one. there was a woman from iowa. her name was peg mullen. she wrote a book about the death of her son, michael mullen. the name of the book was "friendly fire." norman schwartzkopf was the battalion commander. he was so approachable to peg mullen, so human in his relations with peg mullen, who sought to fi
, that in his estimation, the onus is on republicans over the next 24 to 48 hour, basically saying, if they don't put together that bipartisan deal in the senate that you just mentioned, they should have a vote in the house and in the senate on the president's stop-gap measure to extend unemployment benefits and extend tax cuts, only for those making $250,000 or less. the president suggesting, playing the blame game, saying, if the republicans don't hold a vote on his plan, they will be at fault, take a listen. >> i think that over the next 48 hours, my hope is that the people recognize that regardless of partisan differences, our top priority has to be to make sure that taxes on middle-class families do not go up that would hurt our economy badly. >> interesting, the president focusing as he has over and over in recent day, as have lders on the hill about the tax side of the so-called fiscal cliff, massive tax increases, bush tax rates expiring at the end of the year. but a lot of people, not fireworkussing on the sequester, the massive spending cut, that would largely target the pentagon. int
. leave him alone. >> he changed his e-mail address on the, by the way. spent i don't know what your e-mail is. >> both of you change your e-mail address on it. i hadn't planned to say anything but since i'm late, my publisher, editor at eagle told me it would be polite for me to say something. so i just want to for startup i think it's all human events fault that i was late. that's the most important thing. it's not my fault. and thank you so much for all come tonight. sensuality anything about this in any of the mainstream media, except the view, love those gals. i really, really do love them because everything they were saying is everything released by the near times. but "the new york times" is too chicken to argue with me about it. and without sounding like this paranoid, i've never had a book as ignored by the mainstream media as this book. my first book i did a series of morning interviews. this one, they won't even attack me when i'm out, not there, which is what they usually do. know, this one they do not want you to read because it is, it's an emergency book. i wanted it to c
. >> not nothing, you just don't do it with strangers. >> i'm happy to make it. absolutely. but here's something for you. you are watching "morning joe." here's what happens. right now it's time for that. take it away. >> aloha, hawaii. the president is on his way back to d.c. where for him it's about playing small ball with most members of congress still in their home district, speaker boehner put that ball in the senate's court. harry reid tossed it right back. are we looking at another lost day in the negotiations? hitching a right on air force one, the new senator from hawaii and it's not what we expected it to be. here we go again. the president in washington and another deadline. secretary geithner warns we will hit the debt ceiling even before we tumble over the fiscal cliff. good morning from washington. it is thursday, december 27th. this is "the daily rundown." i'm luke russert. two days after christmas and washington is back to work trying to harsh out a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. the senate will get back from the session after holiday break. the president is expected to arrive b
up at the house of these journalists and i don't know what would they do? what would they do? >> i don't know what they would do? i guess they'd maybe protest. i really don't know what they're going to do. i've had some phone calls that some people want to organize that. i've got really mixed feelings about that right now. >> but in your gut how do you feel? should we just complain about it as you are quite publicly and not show up at the journalists' house to just aggravate the situation even more? >> well that's what it is, then we're just as bad as they are. this is their personal agenda to make this happen, to put our families in harm's way, to go back and give it to them at the same way it's not they're in danger, it's to show how upset we are of what they've done. maybe that's what needs to be done. i'd rather not but i'm not going to stop other gun owners and their frustration in letting the editors know the lack of restraint they had with this particular view of theirs. >> scott surmervil summerville, so much for being with us this this morning. >> thank you. >>> in just an
attention on to me and my colleagues the past few weeks is they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill the majority leader refers to passed with only democratic votes. despite his repeated calls for the house to pass it, he snows knows as well as i do, it can't happen. senate so there's nothing for the house to vote on. as i pointed out july 25th. democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of that's what i said july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time, we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and if democrats were really serious, they had proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. let's put that talking point aside. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up
connell, get on board, don't try to filibuster. of course they're talking about a bill that had raise capital on couples making more than $250,000 a year, and do a few other nuts and bolts that are deemed the bare minimum that the president wants to see done before we hit january 1st. i've got to tell you, though, getting back to the votes, the votes simply aren't there in the house of representatives for that. they're likely not even there in the senate, so we're back at square one, amazing as it is to say at this point, thomas. >> when we talk about what we know about the president, as we expect him to return to washington landing at andrews air force base, but what more do we know about this phone calls or the phone calls that went out to the four congressional leaders? >> reporter: we know they took place before the president left time with his family before flying back to washington. he should be back here within about an hour from now, weather permitting. he'll be able to take marine one here, but i exchanged e-mails with top aides. they say they're not going to provide any more details
. >> at minimum, make sure people's taxes don't go up and 2 million people don't lose their unemployment. i was modestly hopeful yesterday. now, the pressure is on congress to produce. >> the president responded to what would happen if no agreement is reached and the nation does fall over that cliff. >> if you look at projections of 2013, people generally felt that the economy would continue to grow, unemployment would tick down, housing would continue to improve, but what's been holding us back is the dysfunction here in washington. if people start seeing that on january 1st, this problem still hasn't been solved, that we haven't seen the deficit reduction that we could have had, the republicans willing to take a deal that i give them. if they say that people's taxes have gone up, which means consumer spending is depressed, then it's going to have an adverse reaction in the markets. >> there was much more to what the president had to say. listen to what he had to say on deficits and spending. >> you are not only going to cut your way to prosperity. one of the fallacies, i think, that has b
in egypt and i thought if i don't get myself there, i'm never going. i'm going to be like moses having seen the land that never entered. [laughter] and i made a reservation with the mileage i had. i decided instead of doing some dumb sure, i would rent an apartment for a few months and just take my work with me, since i write, i could do that, which i did. i did know anyone there. i didn't have one in. i have teams, i didn't know anybody. and as i said i ended up going during a war, but it wasn't even sure what was going to happen. i stayed because i love it and it didn't need to come back. i mean, i would come back to work every few months, but i met somebody good friends. i have more good friends there that ahead in california. i have kids in california and family. i don't know what happened and why i'm still there, quite frankly. it's just that, i can tell you i haven't mastered the language which is one of the great failures of my life, but i still don't want to leave. but as far as what people think, first of all, you go into israel. there are million kinds of jews. there's any kind of
long were you at -- you were at prudential. >> it's owned by prudential, so i've been at peru don'tal for almost 15 years now. >> widely quoted. you know who has made a comeback is ralph -- >> akampora. >> i've seen him around. do you remember his nickname? >> i don't. >> whatever you think of him, he's a great guy. >> he's a good guy. >> ed is going to try to make us slightly -- >> be a little sensitive. let's get you some some of the morning headlines. the biggest one being president obama planning to meet with congressional leaders at 3:00 p.m. eastern time today in a last ditch effort to avoid the fiscal cliff. the house majority leader eric cantor is now telling members to be prepared to work through january 2nd. both sides still far apart, however, on taxes and spending cuts. senate majority leader harry reid says prospects for a deal by monday are still unlikely. there was a lot of movement, motion for not a lot of action. >> where were you yesterday? >> i was here. we were together. >> were we ever with our -- no. but there were duelling senate leaders just -- first mcconn
their colleagues to pass something before the end of the year. they don't think it's a win for them to keep fighting. that means letting taxes go up on the rich. let's see what senator isaacson said. >> the truth of the matter is if we go off the cliff, the president will come back and proposing what he said in washington and we'll adopt it. why should we put the markets in turmoil and people in misunderstanding and lack of confidence? why don't we act now? >> okay so he says might as well do it. but you know the republican reason for not doing it now is? >> senate republicans want a deal done. but house republicans are in total chaos. >> why do they want a deal january 3rd or 4th rather than now? >> if all tax rates go up, any deal can be called a tax cut. it's simple like that. if you go over the cliff, anything's a tax cut. >> if you do it now how's it interpreted? >> the interpretation will some primary voters is you danced around on rates. >> or they pass a bill cutting taxes continuing the bush tax cuts for under $500,000 a year. something they agree on. >> because of what bob's sayin
handle a lot of the heavy lifting today, please, after about a -- >> you look good, joe. you don't look worse for the wear. how late did it go? >> i think we were -- like after 12:00. 12:30. >> you were tweeting me after 12:00. >> why was he up? oh, i know why you were at. >> i assume you continued the tailgating after that, then. >> no. but i definitely got behind some of the other -- i mean, i was not quite up to snuff with some of the other fans as we were exiting. >> those guys had been at it a little longer than you have? >> jae. you definitely don't want to say, hey, watch it, buddy. >> go redskins, right, and get out of the way? >> right. >> it's more dangerous to go to a game in philly. >> is it, really? >> yeah. they throw batteries and -- >> becky, i'm sorry about rutgers again. we didn't get to talk about that. three straight disappointments. there's always next year. are you ready for the big -- >> ready for notre dame. we have notre dame coming up, too. something else to look forward to. do you guys see any lawmakers? are you for notre dame over the tide? >> yeah. sorry, be
and what he had said during the whole "don't ask, don't tell" fight and things that -- i'm sorry, about the nomination of jim hormel to be ambassador to luxembourg back in the '90s. he said the ambassador was openly aggressively homosexual. hagel took a pummelling for a few hours, few days, then miraculously, there was an apology from chuck hagel. there were phone calls from the white house to gay groups. >> seems to me it shows you the toughest place to be in washington right now is a moderate independent, especially if you're moving forward into the public light. both sides have at you. >> right, both sides. again, as we talk about all the time, the partisan nature of this town and particularly in the house is something that, you know, makes a chuck hagel, makes other people a bit of an endangered species. >> it's wild for all the talk, collective talk about how we want bipartisanship, the minute the leaders move forward they get eviscerated. jonathan capehart, thanks for being on the show, we appreciate it. >>> joining me now to talk about how the fiscal cliff will hurt cities across
that don't look in favor of gun owners, and may feel threatened. >> how is this for payback? some publicized the home addresses and phone number of the reporter who wrote the piece, along with other journalists at the paper. >> a little payback there. as you saw, you can click on your own neighborhood. this is public information, that is the one thing we should point out. but is it going too far? if you do have a gun, are you letting people know so burglars can come in and steal it? >> there are gangs involved that will stake out people's houses to see how easy it is to break in and get them. i'm just happy i'm not that reporter who did that piece, because that's a tough one. when your home address and all that privacy is violated, that's tough. >> you got to be careful what you do sometimes. >>> some athletes are in the news today. first off, dallas cowboys lineman josh brent has been indicted for intoxication manslaughter. brant is charged in connection with the crash that killed his friend and teammate jerry brown earlier this month. he's free on bond. the maximum sentence for
, they all had affairs. what do you say to that? >> well, i don't think the idea -- the problem is that general petraeus had an affair. i think the idea and the big problem is that he was director of the cia and he walked into right into one of the most blackmailable situations you can have. it's good the u.s. found out about it before the russians or chinese. it's not that he's a general messing around, and according to the code of the justice that's not allowed. >> teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff with just 36 days to go until tax increases kick, in the white house and congress are playing a high stakes game of let's make a deal. >> only in america believes there has to be this what i believe to be really farcical now surely -- the nature of the world is very fast moving, america has huge economic problems, heading for another fiscal cliff, everyone laughing at you from afar, the american public sick and tired of all the games going on and there are you, grover norquist, a very bright guy still resolutely saying a pledge is a pledge is a pledge, it cannot be broken wh
of play. you don't have to answer it. the correct answer-- the wave... >> yeah. meredith: is the right--was that one of the ones you were-- >> i was leaning towards stomping feet, and i just figured that was way too obvious, based on my memory of the film. meredith: ok, so it's a good thing that you've jumped over this, but there is a price to be paid. how much money did you forfeit? hopefully not too much. $10,000 behind that question. >> ha ha! i'm still playing. meredith: yes, you are. you are still playing. by jumping the question, you're now 11 away from the million dollars and you are at "double money" at this point. the brand oxo was created after founder sam farber saw his wife, betsey, having difficulty gripping what? cosmetic brushes, office supplies, kitchen tools, golf clubs. you get it right, you double the money behind the question. >> heh heh! just watched a documentswer is c--kitchen t answer is c--kitchen tools. ha ha! meredith: you're gonna double your money. it is kitchen tools. let's see how much money is behind this question. whatever it is, you get twice that amou
? >> it is the fault of my wonderful profession. i don't think we teach history as it should be taught. it was a wonderful story about the past that helped to answer questions about our president, and i think the better that we teach history and the further that we get away from the fact driven textbooks and the wonderful stories we tell, the more our children and ourselves will understand how extraordinarily exciting our history is and how important it is to know. [applause] >> next from the georgetown university law center in washington, d.c., a discussion on the supreme court. it's about one hour and ten minutes. >> hello, everyone. i want to welcome you to today's program, which features an all-star lineup of authors who will be discussing their most recent books on the supreme court. i am a professor here at georgetown and executive director of the supreme court institute. it's a real privilege for the supreme court institute to host this event and i would like to thank our deputy director for putting it all together. before i turn the program over to our moderator i would like to
. >> the american people, i don't think understand the house of representatives is operating without the house of representatives. it's being operated with a dictatorship of the speaker. >> the president shows, instead, to spend his time on the campaign trail. >> reporter: what's at stake is real money for every american worker and family. >> the average family earning $50,000 to $75,000 a year will see their taxes rise $2400 in 2013. >> reporter: income tax rates go up at every level. taxes on capital gains and dividends will jump. the 2% payroll tax holiday ends. the alternative minimum tax will hit more families. long-term unemployment benefits expire. >> sad it got to this point, and it's scary, if anything. hopefully they're able to get to something this week. >> reporter: analysts say congress may miss its own deadline, and that could tee up a january fix, but damage may be unavoidable. >> when push comes to shove, they will find a way to bridge their differences. and it may not be pretty, but it will get done. it may get done in such a chaotic fashion that the economy will pay a price.
there are crews on the scene already cleaning up and they have a lot of cleanup to do. right now they don't know how much this is going to cost them to fix up. initial reports right now all but one of the portable classrooms completely destroyed, many of these sticks and splinters you see behind me are what they are now. also the roof of the band hall literally picked up and moved. you can see the sky now and as far as the athletic facility several windows have blown out. the school was built back in the 1920s and one of the largest in alabama with 2,000 students. they're in a rush to get everything back open january 3rd. as far as the rest of mobile they saw damage in other areas as far as houses, a church was damaged as well as the infirmary. there are no reports of injuries or anyone killed. reporting live, christina leavenworth, back to you. >> thanks so much. it's the east coast's turn as the heavy snow seen here in seymour, indiana, is expected to make its way to the ohio valley and further east. these are taped pictures but not taken too long ago. you see the reporter there. blizzard warn
all know, one of the plans that didn't have a name, it wasn't plan "b," i don't know what plan it was because they've had a number over there, but this plan was to show the american people that the $250,000 ceiling on raising taxes wouldn't pass in the house. why didn't they have that vote? because it would have passed. they wanted to kill it. the speaker wanted to show everybody that it wouldn't pass the house. but he couldn't bring it up for vote because it would have passed. republicans, a myriad of republicans, think it's a fair thing to do, and, of course, every democrat would vote for that. the republican leader finds himself frustrated that the president has called on him to help address the fiscal cliff. he's upset because, quote, the phone never rang. he complains that i have not delivered the votes to pass a solution to the fiscal cliff but he's in error. we all know that in july of this year we passed in the senate the relief that it would give to middle class americans. that passed the senate. now, we know that the republicans have buried themselves in procedural ro
the president really think it will come to that? >> at this point, no. they don't. because the white house is hopeful, first of all, that the agreement that the senators are working on can actually move forward after the meeting here. there is a modest uptick in enthusiasm about that possibility. but as for the backup plan, there's no real likelihood that would ever come to a vote. because republicans would likely block it in both the senate and it would likely not come to a vote in the house. so that's really more rhetoric than it is reality and we have to hope for option "a," getting an agreement in the senate, if we're going to avoid going over the cliff. >> rhetoric versus reality, that's always a tricky place to be in washington. listen, this is serious high-stakes political poker here are what can you tell us about the meeting at the white house today? >> well, we've heard different takes, you hear everybody has a different per suspecttive of what happened depending on which party they're in. the big takeaway is everybody left agreeing on the next step which is that the senate will c
but it's absolutely going to be a huge fight going forward. >> it it makes it to the floor? >> i don't think it will make it. i think the house republicans, there are not 218 votes as congress stands right now and if president obama wants to engage congress on this, it will be an uphill battle for him. >> let's listen to chuck schumer responding to wayne lapierre's comments on the press. >> i think he's so extreme and so tone deaf that he actually helps the cause of us passing sensible gun legislation in the congress. >> friday's comments, yesterday's interview, what's your thought here? was he handling the sensitivity properly here? >> when the nra entered the fray on friday, they introduced a different topic into the conversation we'd been talking a lot about gun control, mental health issues and here we have a new topic of arming more people in schools. so i think this might be a more divisive part of the conversation and kind of might rile up some democrats to be opposing them. >> jake, you know, lapierre was very clear in his messaging over the weekend as well as on friday and k

footing. so i think generally we have got clear sailing for 2013. i don't think the market is going to skyrocket. i just don't think we're going to see the wild swings that we have seen the last couple of years. david: david, let me challenge you on that a little bit. tim, we will get to you in a second. you say most of the bad news is behind us, but what if we don't have a deal, and that's still a possibility, we go off the fiscal cliff and as most economists think, we go into a recession. i mean a recession is not priced into this market, is it? >> i think so. david: really? hold on a second, the last time we had a recession the dow went down. >> i don't think there's really many things they can do in congress to avoid a very slow growth economy. whatever they do, it is not going to cause the economy to grow like crazy. i don't think the market is pricing any any kind of major reversal. david: let me be precise here. you are saying specifically that if we go into a recession, a recession, a full-blown recession is not priced into this market, correct? >> i think to be specific i d
the gop is standing up for the rich what the democrats don't understand is that the hostility towards how much washington end spends that this whole discussion of the last six weeks has been about raising taxes on the wealthy. >> let's say we get a deal and it's short-term spending cuts and people don't have someone to blame because we don't go over the cliff, but the markets don't like it the world economy doesn't like it and ultimately our currency becomes in jeopardy as the currency of the world. >> at this point they will blame the republicans. if you can the american people to choose or dig in what they really want is to end the spending more than raising the tacks. they will accept a tax increase on the wealthiest americans. but an even higher percentage support significant spending cuts. and that's not part of the democratic package, so what i'm saying is that both sides here have a problem with the american people, and it's why congress has an 11% job approval rating. gadhafi had an 17% approval rating, and that's from the people he was killing. >>> how ar

this moment very seriously. because there are so many people who are going to be possibly harmed if we don't act. and so we're just going to have to see what they're able to come up with. >> and i've got some more policy things. but on the politics and the optics of it, explain to people who are watching now who are a couple of days away from their taxes going up. it's hard for them to get their heads around you not being in d.c., that congress or the house at least not being in session. it's as if -- again it's the optics of this thing. it almost sounds like you're saying we've got to sit back and wait and see what happens. it doesn't sound like work is being done. it doesn't sound like there's a sense of urgency that needs to be right now. >> i think there is a sense of urgency, t.j., just because of where we are. we're right at the deadline. as a matter of fact, it looks like we will be here on new year's eve and possibly new year's day. they've already alerted us, mention of the house, to look at a possible way of doing that. so there is a sense of urgency. the problem is that we've go

which deductions we're talking about and any timetable for them? >> i have to confess, bill, i don't know how exactly that works. these are provisions that were first initiated in the 1990s as a way of getting more revenue from people at the top without raising their rates. so what you do is you take the same deductions that other people can take and you limit their value over a certain income level. this is in addition to something the president's proposed of making the tax deductions for people above a certain income level valued only at a lower percentage tax rate than the 39.6% rate. we'll see how all of these things mesh and how they're implemented ultimately. but it's a way of getting money from people below the $400,000 threshold. >> we'll get back to you shortly. >> i've got one more question. i hear maybe republicans want that to come down in exchange for allowing any increase on the higher income individuals. >> i think the republicans have given up the ghost on that issue because it's republicans who have been pushing the idea that this is all buttoned up and it's why mc

a bill too. we passed a bill that does the same thing. why don't you just take our bill and go ahead and get it through? we need your help. >> they could well do that. the bill that has the $250,000 or below. it's interesting now that essentially here we have speaker boehner walking away saying well the senate has to act. they can do whatever. we're going to say on vacation. who does harry reid have to negotiate with them? where does he go? >> the president and harry reid can only negotiate so much. >> the question becomes if they can get a bill for 250 and below perhaps with the unemployment insurance attached to it, maybe put in sweetener with the estate tax, could they guarantee that would pass the house of representatives? from the statement we do not know that. >> jared, last week it was speaker boehner himself who could not get his own bill passed, the plan "b." and yet here he is trying to put it back on democrats and the president to get the bill passed making it clear they're not prepared to come back to washington and do anything to avoid the fiscal cliff. what do you think

. but the supreme court has said that, you know, those words really don't mean what they say, there's not a categorical ban and that there is an exception in this area. and you would think, well, gee, you know, if the supreme court is going to carve out an exception, you know, to the principle of racial discrimination that's, you know, pretty clearly there in the haw, you know,, the branches have spoken to this, it must be pretty, pretty strong and undeniable, you know? it must be something like, you know, it helps us identify somebody that's about to set off a nuclear bomb in the middle of new york city or something like that, you know, in order to be compelling. well, you know, the argument is that if you use racial discrimination in college admissions, um, it's likely that there will be somewhat more of unrehearsed, interracial conversations among students and that the african-american kids and the latino kids, you know, who get these preferences are going to say something to the white kids and the asian kids that is, just has overwhelming, compelling educational benefits for the
